Angela Robinson, writer and producer of Girltrash: All Night Long, is publicly no longer associating herself with the film or with Power Up. Robinson released the following statement:
“Girltrash!” is a project close to my heart.
I was trying to find a way to make affordable, quality lesbian entertainment and develop a brand that would encompass web series, movies, television, graphic novels and stage musicals. To this end, after first making a web series and a penning a graphic novel, I produced “Girltrash: All Night Long” with Stacy Codikow.
I love the movie and each and every person that tirelessly worked on this project – the crew and mentees that donated their time and energy for free or for cut rates, the incredible musicians, Lisa Rieffel and Johnny Dunn, who wrote fantastic songs, the awesome actors who worked all night long for months on end, Luke Tierney, the composer and Chris Hill, the editor, and of course, Alex Kondracke, the amazing director. I am extremely proud of the work that was done.
But POWER UP is presenting a version of the film that I have not seen, that is unfinished and that has not been creatively approved by me and as a result, I do not support nor validate any screenings or commercial sales of “Girltrash: All Night Long” at this time.
Working with Stacy Codikow and POWER UP has been, without a doubt, the worst experience of my career. Because Stacy has been so horrible I will never again be involved in any project in which Stacy Codikow or POWER UP is involved.”
Girltrash: All Night Long, is set to be released on DVD Dec. 15.
